Lights, beaming down the rainy street
All the faces that I meet tell me I'm wrong
Ride, staring at the neon signs
Making up a storyline, gotta hold on
Not lost, even in the death of night
I can make it out alright
Just let me go
Yeah, I, I will make it through somehow
Let me figure out what is in and out

So baby, hold on for the ride of your life
High above ground, living it now
I'm gonna take you to the end of the line
Taking that fight, make it alright
It doesn't matter if I stumble and fall
I'll make it through, I'll never touch the ground
So baby, hold on for the ride of your life
Hold on real tight, make it alright

Hard, I won't give my heart and soul
I am going for the glow, no looking back
I'm gonna rise high up in the atmosphere
I ain't got no time to fear
Follow my tracks

Not lost, following the neon lights
Shooting through the summer skies
Just let me go
Yeah I, I will make it through somehow
Let me figure out what is in and out

So baby, hold on for the ride of your life
High above ground, living it now
I'm gonna take you to the end of the line
Taking that fight, make it alright
It doesn't matter if I stumble and fall
I'll make it through, I'll never touch the ground
So baby, hold on for the ride of your life
Hold on real tight, make it alright

I'm gonna take all the world tonight (Oh-woah-oh-oh)
Not gonna ask, gonna take what's mine (Oh-woah-oh-oh)
So hold on tight, baby, let's get high (Oh-woah-oh-oh)
High above the ground
Ride, staring at the neon signs
Let me figure out what is in and out

So baby, hold on for the ride of your life
High above ground, living it now
I'm gonna take you to the end of the line
Taking that fight, make it alright
It doesn't matter if I stumble and fall
I'll make it through, I'll never touch the ground
So baby, hold on for the ride of your life
Hold on real tight, make it alright​

The 2020 was actually quite fine (except for the over-the-top ending that was simply too much), but I think they can do so much better and Alicja has some really strong vocals.

My hopes for TVP are generally low, but now they have one year to prepare something stronger, a bit more modern? Maybe uptempo even (although I think ballad might work better for Alicja).

Still no news here? I think it will be Alicja in the end, and as my previous post I think she's a good choice, but needs a stronger better structured song though (2020 was alright but production-wise and composition was a bit flawed, and the Bond-themed sound isn't fully my cup of tea in this time and age, also she did oversing it in not the most pleasant way... sometimes less is more girl!).

she has so many good songs, so I really hope she works with producers she works otherwise outside of esc. "Pusto" and "Gdzies" are soooo good.

I guess TVP is waiting for the new winner of The Voice. It's likely it will be this guy:

The representative for Eurovision 2021 could come from The Voice 2020? If the choice will not be Alicja, the other option is this, or Alicja feat. the winner of The Voice Poland? Or other secret artist?

oh no.. why can't they pick established artists, who actually have developed their genre... and this isn't the UK or France - established artists would actually do it.

roughly saying it's way easier to bend artists like these whatever the tv wants. no brand would mean you can ask them to do whatever brand you wished them to.

That's where you're unfortunately wrong, ESC in Poland has a similar reputation as in the UK and France, hence why established acts rarely want to enter (at least not if they're currently popular).

My opinion:
1- internal selection with Alicja as second chance for her after ESC 2020
2- internal selection with Krystian as a winner of The Voice 2020
3- internal selection with Alicja feat. Krystian
4- a new secret artist

I think no possibility for National Selection with this restriction for Covid-19, time to send the songs, make a live selection etc

I would prefer Krystian itself but I woudn't be mad for Alicija duet with Krystian
Also Lanbery should a produce epic power ballad for Krystian and Alicija

I prefer Alicja - she has more charisma and has already developed her own style of music, whereas Krystian kinda lacks charisma and also not a fan of that kind of dramatic voices..and I think TVP will pick Alicja at the end.

I've checked the dates on when TVP announced their internal choices the last times they did them (2014, 2015 and 2019) and they were all quite late, so I don't expect any announcements from them for 2021 until February at least.
